    Many do, including the lawyers at my firm. But you must remember that every defendant in a criminal case has the right to a lawyer free of charge as long as they cannot afford one. usually, this is the public defender, who is a full fledged attorney, who hs one to law school and passed the bar exam just as every other lawyer in the courtroom has.

In the petition, you must show that the crime of which you were convicted is a "wobbler "(chargable as either a felony or a misdemeanor), that you have completed...
